Concluding my recount of the events from Jonathan Hickman’s epic story from his Avengers/New Avengers runs that lead directly into the new Secret Wars if so at least Jimmy Impossible knows what’s going on.
As always, potentially massive SPOILERS after the cut.
This week’s recap of Jonathan Hickman’s dual Avengers runs leading up to the new Secret Wars will cover the Infinity crossover, which brought Thanos into the story in a way that his creator Jim Starlin has probably already retconned as out-of-character behavior, possible the work of a clone. Because that’s what he does any time anyone other than he uses Thanos in a story.
This entry will probably be one of the longest and densest since it covers the Infinity storyline. You’ve been warned. As always, SPOILERS behind the cut.
For those who plan to read the new Secret Wars but managed to miss the preliminary work in the storyline, here’s part three of the summary.
SPOILERS below the cut.
Last week I covered the opening steps on the path to Marvel’s upcoming Secret Wars. Now, let’s get on to part two.
As before, SPOILERS below the cut.
Marvel’s big Secret Wars mega-storyarc is coming soon, and if you’ve been following Jimmy Impossible’s posts, you’ve probably gotten a lot of information on what worlds and zones are going to exist and a few of the more recent steps leading to the start of this epic storyline. But Jimmy hasn’t been reading Jonathan Hickman’s Avengers/New Avengers work from the beginning. I have. Jimmy actually goes out sometimes.
Secret Wars looks to be an epic story in the making, and Hickman’s been setting this thing up for the past couple years. People who skipped those steps and jump right into Secret Wars might feel a little lost since they missed the preliminaries.
So, as a public service, here’s what you need to know from the build-up to Secret Wars. SPOILERS behind the cut.
